To Colonel Timothy Pickering
[Passaic Falls, New Jersey, November 20, 1780]
Be so good as to urge the bringing forward the boats;1 there is no time to be lost. They ought to be with the others by Wednesday evening, if possible.

I think I mentioned to you in my first note,2 that the boats would be by this time at Dobbes ferry. ’Tis there the teams must go.
